The weekly sales charts for boxed video games in the UK are in, courtesy of UKIE / Gfk Chart-Track (via GamesIndustry). FIFA 20 debuted on top of the charts last week with solid sales, and for the week ending October 5, it’s unsurprisingly managed to hold on to that lead, in spite of a pretty major new release.
That new release was Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which hasn’t had a bad debut by any means. It’s placed second in the charts. In spite of the high position though, physical sales for the game are a fifth of what they were for Ghost Recon Wildlands when it launched in March 2017. The other new release of the week, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, debuts at No. 6, selling the most on PS4, followed by the Switch, and then the Xbox One.
Last week saw a couple of older Xbox One games seeing a rise in sales to break into the top 10 thanks to bundles being sold by Microsoft, and this week, those games have continued that rise. Sea of Thieves, Minecraft: Xbox Edition, and Forza Horizon 3 have all seen a bit of a bump in sales to bring up the rear end of the top 10.
Meanwhile, on the Switch side of things, evergreen title Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has also seen a bit of a boost for its third consecutive week-on-week growth in sales. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, meanwhile, holds steady in fifth place, after a 60 per cent drop. Borderlands 3 remains at No. 3 in spite a 43 per cent drop, while Gears 5, with just a 1 per cent drop, also hangs on to the fourth spot.
